Hold Fulfillment Preferences settings

The following describes the settings you can select on the Hold Fulfillment Preferences screen:

  • Yes: Your library patrons' holds will be fulfilled before patrons of other libraries within your group. Items owned by the library that are currently available or become available by being checked in will fulfill a hold request for a patron from your library regardless of the patron's position in the title's hold queue.
  • No: Your library's patrons will not be preferred when fulfilling holds. Holds will be fulfilled in chronological order, regardless of patron's library.
